Today the bank of México released a new bimetallic coin. its characteristics are:

Face value: 20 pesos
Diameter: 30 mm
Weight: 12.67 gr
Shape: dodecagonal
Topic: 100 years since the death of General Emiliano Zapata Salazar
Edge: Discontinuous reeded
security features: Virtual image & micro-sized lettering

Note: despite coin has the date 2019 on the reverse it was actually minted this 2021. It has the date 2019 because the 100 years of the death of Zapata happened on april 10 1919.

Best Regards from Mexico,
Lion ALchemist

...that lettering doesn't look very micro to me. Fairly typical size for mottoes (though admittedly they're usually on ribbons). I'm pretty sure I've seen coins a century older with smaller lettering.

But neat coin!

At this moment only 1 million, a low amount consider that it is a circulating coin. we do not know if Banco de México will order more coins to the Mexican mint.

I agree, it is too big to be a micro text, however the Mexican mint officially call it a microtext.

Indeed, that's a low number.

Let's hope they will.
